    There were sure enough more boats on the lake than usual at the Lakefest, but on normal days from spring to autumn locals and outsiders use the lake to the full. People like to go to the lake to fish, swim, or simply cruise the water. Clarksville Marina rents all sorts of watercraft. Click on the website for details and conditions. If you've brought your own boat, there is docking at the Lake Motel and Occoneechee State Park.

    Occoneechee State Park is on Buggs Island Lake. The park has 18 miles of trails that allow the guest to experience the history of the Occoneechee Indians and plantation life in the 1800s.

    About 3 miles of walking trails go through the woods and past scenic lake views. A mile-long trail takes visitors to the terraced gardens of the Old Plantation grounds.

    They don't let you swim from the shoreline because of steep and sudden drop-offs and heavy boat traffic.

    Buggs Island Lake and connecting Lake Gaston are famous for the fish found there. Striped and largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie and perch are plentiful. A valid Virginia or North Carolina fishing license is required.

    Equipment: Possibly a tent, or camping gear!
